“Anyone can count the seeds in an apple, but only God can count the number of apples in a seed. ~Robert H. Schuller
Matthew 13:31 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field:
Matthew 13:32 Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.
For the last couple of months my attention has been brought repeatedly to seeds and the productive power within them. Seeds in themselves are not very note worthy in appearance, but their potential is amazing. Our actions and words are seeds.
Most actions or words go unnoticed to the untrained ear and eye. Yet each action and each word has great power for good or destruction.
In our daily lives it can be easy to ignore the seed of our life's plantings. The actions, the words that are planted in our life field and the life field of others.
Do not dismiss the power of your actions and reactions. Life is a field that is being planted second by second. You have great potential within you. I have great potential within me. We are seeds.
Leave and live this life having grown into the tree of righteousness that God intended you to be.
Isaiah 61:3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.
